Just thought I'd mix it all up with a bit of English to break the monotony of art activities.
The first line is an adjective and a noun.
The second line has two adjectives.
The third line has two or three verbs and a noun.
The next line is a phrase or a thought about the subject.
The last line reveals all.
So lets say I wanted to write a poem about my (now not so little) kitten, Ritchie McClaw.
Firstly I would brainstorm as many adjectives about him as I could (e.g. black, hyper, cheeky, destructive, naughty, curious, inquisitive, cute, adorable, annoying...).
Obviously the layout of the poem is important and some students, particularly young students, struggle with the idea of using new lines for each section of the poem. Punctuation such as commas and full stops are not necessary, but capital letters at the beginning of each line are.
Ofcourse, once the students have written their poems, I'm sure you'll find an appropriate way to publish and display them.
